Information about the Program
Saint Mary's College of California offers a dual degree, or 3+2 Engineering Program. This means that students take basic science and core curriculum courses in their first three years at SMC, and then finish their engineering degree in the remaining two years at a second school. Students in this program receive two degrees when they finish at the engineering school: a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts from SMC and a Bachelor of Science in their chosen engineering field from the second school. SMC has partnered with Washington University in Saint Louis.
Agreement with Washington University of Saint Louis
If a student maintains a 3.25 GPA (overall and in their science courses) and takes the courses required (listed at Wash U and in the SMC catalog) they are guaranteed admission to Wash U. Wash U also offers a simplified transfer process. (See links to the right.)
Suggested three-year plans
Please talk with an advisor in Physics to check for things like: Physics 60 is only offered in Fall semesters, Physics 181 in spring semesters, Physics 110, 115, and 125 are offered alternate years, and things like that.
J-Term at Wash U
We strongly recommend that students take a Jan Term course at Wash U during the December/January of their Sophomore and/or Junior years. They typically offer two courses you can choose from: a statics courses and a circuits course. More about the program is here.
